When in a hurry, or even if not, this is my favourite go to breakfast. For those on a paleo diet this is great because there are no carbs. It is also gluten, sugar and dairy free. If you want it to be even more GL and paleo friendly, omit the apple and just add the summer berries.
Coconut Superfood breakfast bowl
A few dollops of coconut yoghurt (or any other plain yoghurt if not following a dairy free diet)
Handful of sunflower seeds
Handful of pumpkin seeds
Sprinkling of golden linseeds (optional)
Sprinkling of raw cacao nibs
Spoonful of maca (optional)
One small finely chopped apple
Handful of any summer berries: strawberries, raspberries, blueberries (or a mixture)
In a pan, dry roast first the sunflower seeds, then the pumpkin seeds and finally the linseeds. (Make sure you put a lid on before toasting the linseeds because they will fly everywhere and don't burn them.)
I deliberately haven't put exact quantities because this is a recipe that you will add or subtract to but it is just so delicious, you can't go wrong. You could also add some chopped nuts as well as or instead of the toasted seeds.
Spoon the yoghurt into the bowl, chop up the apple, add the summerfruit and then add all the dry ingredients. Stir it all around and enjoy.
And let me know if you love it as much as I do.
This is a recipe I recommend to some of my Acupuncture patients as part of my nutritional advice. So many people skip breakfast or make it a low priority and grab a piece of toast or have a bowl of sugary cereal. This recipe takes a few minutes to prepare and you could even prepare the night before work and take it into work with you.
